Description of the book
All they want for Christmas is you . . .Christmas is nearly here in the quiet village of Beamish, and in every home, angels are sitting pretty atop their tinsel-adorned trees. Little do the residents know, there’s a killer in their midst, who’s intent on having a very cold blooded Christmas indeed…
DI Tom Stonem’s peaceful holiday is cut short when a body is discovered nearby, in the shadow of the Angel of the North. The dead man is bound, his arms outstretched in the sculpture’s iconic pose. In the man’s pocket is what appears to be a little girl’s Christmas list, with the first item – 1. Angel delight – crossed off.
When a second body is found – a woman, stabbed in the abdomen after her work Christmas do – Stonem can’t help but notice a grim connection between the crime scenes and the items on the seemingly innocent list. 2. Red party dress. Could this be a murderer’s twisted code?
As a blizzard rages outside, the body count is snowballing. Can Stonem stop the killer before he gets everyone on his Christmas list?
